Out of curiosity, has anyone found an easy way to get OCTGN to run on a Mac?

Just one more entry and we are full!

Wish I knew more about Mac support for OCTGN. Best thing I have is a test client they ran a few years ago. http://help.octgn.net/support/discussions/topics/46055

Not sure how it worked out. I suppose Wine is always an option, but I don't have much experience with it

Just an announcement.
We added an errata in the restrictions section. Here is what is included in the tournament

Disciple of Radiance text change
Once per round, whenever your Mage casts or reveals a healing spell, Disciple of Radiance may deal 1 direct light damage to a target creature in her zone.

Interesting. Is there a reason for changing it to once per round? I'd be very surprised if such an ability were OP in arena and not in academy.

It is Sailor. Because you can have 6 disciples out and academy only allows 3 at once. additionally, mana is a bigger issue, there is no spawnpoint in academy and games are shorter.

Cast 6 of them, each with iguana regrowth. Teleport/divine intervention into the zone, reveal the iguana's and you do 36 damage... You have just won the game.

Personally I'd errata to limit 3 of them in a book like in academy instead of the current errata.

When in doubt kill it with fire? I never doubt and crush them right away.

It probably needs one of those things where it says "if this card's controlling mage is level 5 or higher…" The only cards I've seen so far that have that are equipment cards that give the mage an attack with one extra die if the mage is level 5+.

Maybe if this creature's controlling mage is level 5 or higher, increase its level by 1?

If you want to do an Errata or balance something inofficially, you should walk on a path that is understandable for everyone and solves the issue at the same time.

We thought about this Disciple-problem for several weeks now, some ideas came into the closer selection. Of of them had to be picked and since it's the tournament of Coshade and his Arcane Duels buddies, he is the right one to make that choice.

I think he made a good one. After the tournament we will see if that was enough or even more would have been nessecary.
Akiro, I have never prayed to you before. No one will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, or why we died. All that matters is that one stood against many. That's what's important! Valor pleases you, Akiro... so grant me strength! And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you!

Maybe it needs an errata that says that each disciple can only activate twice per round. It would be redundant in academy but not in arena. Two iguana regrowths times six disciples is 12 damage, which is more comparable to wot push combo, and costs more mana to boot.

Since it doesn't make sense to have a spell with a pseudo-semi-epic trait. That just screams "contrived" and "not streamlined" to me. And my earlier suggestion doesn't work either. Why would a spell that is easy for an academy mage to cast be harder for an arena mage? That doesn't make sense either. But if it was the disciple herself that could only use her powers twice per round before needing to recharge, that would make more sense.

Hey! So we had one player drop and that leaves 1 spot open for 16 players! If you haven't signed up, Email me today!!!

Also if we get 20, we will probably extend the first round to include more players like last ADMW. So if you are being shy to not take that last spot, don't worry!

Sorry to hear that Devil! That sounds really painful. I hope you recover well.
 That means we are 1 man short of 16! Anyone that wants to enter just email me!

Here you go! Keep in mind they will be randomized on the day the tournament begins. So you won't know who will be in your group until then.

Challonge ---> http://challonge.com/ADMWSpecial
If you want a record between MW tournaments feel free to register, it's free and tracks your W/L competitively.

Also I'll update the post on the front this weekend.
